In his statement while addressing the media in Nairobi on Friday, DPP Haji said that it is important for people to follow the court orders.

This follows a number of situations where court orders have been defied, most leaders complaining of "orders from above" being the cause of all of it.

In that matter, both the DPP and AG are considering to reinstate Contempt of Court Act which had previously been pronounced to be unconstitutional, where through the act, those that who defy court orders will be forced to face criminal proceedings.

“It is important for all of us to respect court orders… We had a Contempt of Court Act that was pronounced to be unconstitutional by Judiciary. We are in discussion with the AG to have the Act back so that those who break court orders can face criminal proceedings” DPP Haji said.

Also, on corruption cases, DPP Haji said that this year will be a year of recovery.

He revealed that there is prosecution budget amounting to 2.9 billion shillings that has been sent aside for a team that will oversight the independence of the ODPP.

“This year you will see more recoveries. We now have the prosecution fund with Sh2.9B in the account. We are setting up the team that will oversight it independent of the ODPP…” he said
